Business & Professional Notices from 1916

Theodore Mackrell, who was for years employed at Newburgh by the Erie Railroad Co. as train dispatcher, is now Erie superintendent at Huntington, Ind. The advancement of Mr. Mackrell has been merited. In July, 1913, he wanted the road on his division double-tracked, and realizing that a little encouragement would work wonders, he told his staff that when the road was completed he would give them a dinner that would make a record for such affairs. The track is laid, 205 miles have been completed and Mr. Mackrell last week gave orders for the dinner. (Middletown Daily Times, January 24, 1916)

Roy Wells, son of Mr. and Mrs. O.J. Wells, of Lime Creek, received a telegram Monday informing him that he had been appointed assistant in the U.S. weather bureau at Denver. Mr. Wells will begin his new duties Sept. 1. (Adrian Daily Telegram, August 14, 1916)
